The video above is done correctly.

There is a 1 x1" block I use in the shop to rest the rim on (sidestand side) to get the hub up off the ground. (shown in video)

On the trail I'll look for a branch or dig a small ditch if need be. (to keep the rotor off the ground. Gotta do what can when on the side of the road.

If you looking for a cheap, strong drop cloth for the trails. You can wrap your tire irons in a USPS shipping bag. They are "Tyvek".

Strong, light weight, and Free.
